Medik8 betaCleanse deep cleansing, antibacterial and exfoliating foaming cleanser suitable for acneic and oily skin. Developed especially for problem skin, betaCleanse combines the effective FDA approved anti-acne beta hydroxy acid - salicylic acid with a novel niacinamide, tea tree oil and chlorhexidine gluconate blend to help improve the appearance of problematic skin, whilst helping prevent future breakouts.
Suitable for acneic and oily skin
Salicylic Acid (2.0%)- Exfoliation properties comparable to those of AHAs with less irritation to the skin. Blocked pores are cleared as dead surface skin is sloughed away, preventing congested skin. FDA approved for treatment of acneic skins.
Niacinamide (4.0%) – also known as Vitamin B3; exhibits anti-inflammatory action, whilst reducing redness and irritation. Reduces the rate of sebum production and aids with exfoliation, preventing pore blockages, which can lead to spots.
L-Mandelic Acid - a gentle anti-bacterial AHA, with exfoliation results comparable to those of glycolic acid, without the associated stinging or irritation.
Chlorhexidine Gluconate - aids in preventing bacterial growth during use, whilst helping to inhibit microbial re-growth between uses.
Tea Tree Oil - helps to reduce skin inflammation, whilst exhibiting anti-microbial properties on existing lesions.
Shelf life: 12 months Up to 100 applications

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE:

Pre-treatment skin preparation before facials, skin peels (especially with highly concentrated AHAs or BHAs), and other salon-based procedures
Post-peeling skincare maintenance (acceleration of regenerative processes and consolidation of procedure results)
